I Am Roses + Conie Fong Tori the Dragon

 Happy Friday everyone! I'm back today for I Am Roses featuring their gorgeous flowers with an adorable image from Conie Fong called Tori the Dragon-Up. I love the entire dragon line so I decided to bring out an oldie but goodie! And what better way to enhance a card than to add beautiful IAR flowers. They are my favorite, and really add that extra touch to any project.

Copics:
Dragon: YR06, YR23, YR25, YR67/Spots: G19, G46, G28/R20
Yellow: Y11, Y21, YR21, YR23, YR24
Teal: BG11, BG13, BG15, BG72, BG75
Sky: Tumbled Glass DO Ink

I used some plaid paper and enamel dots from Doodlebug Design. The sentiment is from Diamond Press. 


Remember, you have until AUGUST 8th to link up your project to our current ANYTHING GOES Challenge. Be sure to use a minimum of 3 I Am Roses products on your card to qualify for a prize. I can't wait to see what you make!

Hugs,
Rosie

TLC Designs Shop: FORAGING FAIRIES Interactive Card

 Happy Sunday friends! I'm back today with a card featuring products from TLC Designs. On the last Sunday of every month I'll be featuring products from stamps, to digis, to the awesome dies carried in the store.

Tammy has an amazing Facebook Group called TLC Designs Creative Sharing. Please pop over and join us! This is a very supportive community, and we can't wait to see your creations using TLC Designs products. To get you started there are even some FREEBIES. Every month, there will also be a monthly Facebook Challenge for opportunities to win prizes that runs from the 15th until the 14th of the next month. The current July challenge is an Interactive Challenge!

Today, my card features these adorable fairies from a new digi set called FORAGING FAIRIES. I combined this set with the HAPPY DRAGONFLY CIRCLE DIES. The sentiment is from the FOREST PALS CLEAR STAMP SET
 

 I created the scene in MS Word and printed it on Copic Xpress It Blending Card. I then cut it out using the stitched circle from the Happy Dragonfly Circle Dies. Next I used a cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass DO Ink to create the sky. Then I colored in the rest of the scene with Copic markers.

COPICS:
Boy Fairy Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E04
Hair: E31, E59
Hat: YG23, YG25, YG67, G28, R24, R27, R37, R59, R89
Blueberry: B24, B26, B28, B79
Shirt: BG13, BG15, BG18, BG78
Sash: E31, E57, E59
Wings: BG10, Stickles
Girl Fairy Skin: E11, E13, E15, E18
Hair: E43, E44, E49, Black
Headband: RV02, RV04, RV06, RV09, Y11, Y15, Y24
Dress: RV02, RV04, RV09
Cup: V04, V15, V17, BV08
Wings: BG10, Stickles
Tablecloth: R00, R02, R05, R22, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG78, RV04, RV09
Tree trunk: E43, E44, E49, E77
Grass: YG06, YG23, YG25, YG67

The gorgeous paper is from the PERFECTLY PRECIOUS PAPER PAD. This set of paper measures 5.5 x 8.5 so it's great for A2 cards, square cards, and even slimline cards. Have you figured out what part of my card is interactive? I placed the sentiment on an action wobble so when you flick it, the dragonfly will wobble.

 
I hope you play along in the challenge! Remember, as long as you use 1 item from the store (including digis or the freebies), and have some interactive element on it, you qualify! To enter, head to the TLC Designs Creative Sharing Facebook Group and go under Albums to load your card to the current challenge.
 
 
 
 For more inspiration from my fellow DT Sisters head to the TLC Designs Blog!

Have a great Sunday!

Jaded Blossom: Friend-a-saurus Coffee Slider

 Happy Friday everyone! Before I get to my project, I wanted to remind you that we have our "ANYTHING GOES" Challenge going on until July 30th at Jaded Blossom! You still have time to enter it for a chance to win a FREE Stamp Set. All you have to do to qualify is use at least 1 item from the Jaded Blossom Store....easy peasy! 

For my project today, I used one of my favorite dies called the Coffee Slider Die. It creates the cutest gift card holder! Since I'm still on a dinosaur high from the June Release, I decided to make this holder with a dino theme. I used the Mini Dino Stencil and Distress Oxide Inks to create the pattern on the main coffee holder shape. On the kraft koozie and lid top, I used a stencil that might seem out of place....can you tell which stencil it is? It's the Knit Stitch Stencil! When I looked at it, it kind of looked like dino foot prints and also leaves so I used it to create the backdrop to my dinos. The dinosaurs are from the Prehistoric Age Stamp Set.


On the inside gift card holder part, I used patterned paper for the main area, and the Knit Stitch Stencil on kraft paper for the lid. The faux washi tape was created using one of the stamps from Dinosaur Candies. That awesome sentiment is from the Friend-a-Saurus Stamp Set. I just trimmed it down.


We hope you play along in the JULY Challenge for a chance to win a FREE Stamp Set! Be sure to check out the Jaded Blossom Store for all your stamps and gift giving supplies. They have various Cutting Dies to make party favors along with Favor Bags and Boxes. 

 Hugs, 
Rosie

The Greeting Farm Digi Stamp Feature: DRESS UP SUMMER

 Happy Thursday everyone! Today, we have a Digital Stamp Feature for The Greeting Farm showcasing the new digi released on July 1st called DRESS UP SUMMER. I have loved seeing all of the creative combinations the Digi Team has come up with using these images!

I am definitely not a master at creating digi scenes, but I do love digi stamps. The great thing about the digital sets from The Greeting Farm is that Marie includes a summary sheet of all the digis together in one picture. I usually just copy that summary picture, paste into Word, print and then fussy cut the images I want to use for my card.


For this card, I cut a circle from some cardstock and taped it to my card front. I then used Distress Oxide Inks to create the beach scene and removed the circle template. Next, I colored up the sweet girl and her dog and added them to the beach scene using foam tape. I cut the sentiment out, glued it to some yellow cardstock and mounted it to the card using more foam tape. 


 Be sure to head over to The Greeting Farm Store and grab your favorites. You're going to LOVE them all! And please join The Greeting Farm Fan Page to share you creations. We would love to see them!
 
Hugs,
Rosie

I Am Roses July 2021 Challenge: ANYTHING GOES!

 It's The 15th of the month, and we are back with a brand new I Am Roses ANYTHING GOES Challenge! Come play along for a chance at 1 of the 4 prizes up for grabs!

Today, I created a slimline card using an awesome card kit from Diamond Press called FARMHOUSE GREETING SLIMLINE CARD BUNDLE. It's a fabulous card kit in a beautiful box, and comes with so many amazing goodies. This kit will allow you to create those holiday cards quickly and easily. And by adding some gorgeous IAR flowers you can take them to another level. I might have added too many flowers, but I figure that means there is more for the recipient to enjoy, LOL!
 
 
 
The other awesome part of this Diamond Press kit is that you can cut the card bases in half and double your supplies. I cut the striped card base in half and then glued it to a black card base. That gives me another striped piece to use later. The gold foiled sentiment is also part of the DP Farmhouse Greeting Kit.

Jaded Blossom: JUST WANTED TO BUG YOU!

 Happy Friday everyone! I've been having so much fun creating my own background paper using Jaded Blossom Stamps! I created 3 mini cards for the Anything Goes Challenge that went live on July 4th. And today, I'm back again with another card featuring some cute bugs!


I used the small bugs from the BABY BUGS stamp set to stamp the background. The sentiment and stars are from BIRTHDAY BUG TAGS. After stamping and coloring in the insects, I used B99 to color in the background dark blue. 

 
Remember, we currently have the July Celebration Sale happening until July 16th!
